JAMESTOWN PARKS AND RECREATION PROGRAM POLICY

The Jamestown Parks & Recreation Department programs are open to everyone. The department does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, age or ability.

 

MISSION STATEMENT

The Jamestown Parks & Recreation Department is dedicated to providing and preserving the highest quality of parks and program services for our citizens as possible with the resources available.

 

USE OF FACILITIES

Our facilities are operated and maintained for your enjoyment. Anyone misusing a facility or disregarding the rules may be subject to having their privileges revoked at the discretion of the management. All Parks close at 10:30 PM

 

EQUIPMENT FOR USE

The Parks and Recreation Department has equipment available to be used for your picnics and reunions. Equipment available: volleyballs and nets, horseshoes and poles, baseball bases. Call 252-3982 for more information.

 

REFUND

No refunds will be given once the program has started. Participants will receive a full refund if a program is cancelled due to lack of participants; lack of facilities, lack of qualified instructions or the program has not yet officially begun. All refunds will be issued in the form of a check.

 

INSURANCE

The Jamestown Parks and Recreation Department does not carry medical or accident insurance for the participants of the programs. The cost of doing so would be so high that fees charged for programs would become prohibitive. We suggest that you review your family’s health insurance plan to be sure that it provides sufficient coverage.
